Peaches, Berries, and Cream Popsicles

Summer has officially hit here in Houston. This means two things: First, if we don’t go outside before 10AM, we don’t go outside. Second, it’s popsicle season!

If you haven’t made your own popsicles before, it can be intimidating, but I promise it’s just as easy as making a smoothie. You simply put that smoothie into the freezer. There are limitless combinations, and we try different kinds regularly.

I love making my own popsicles, because I know there’s no weird food dyes or flavors, I can make flavors that are more interesting than simply “grape”, and it’s an easy way to involve my toddler in a fun, low stress activity in the kitchen.

We had frozen peaches substituted for mango in our grocery delivery a few weeks ago, and I’m not mad about it. We’ve had frozen peaches plain as a great cold snack after playing outside, warmed on top of our waffles, and now in our popsicles! If you haven’t tried frozen peaches, I highly recommend.

I think my toddler’s favorite part of these are the “surprise” peach bits she finds throughout.

Peaches, Berries, and Cream Popsicles

Ingredients

2 cups frozen, sliced peaches

1/2 cup frozen strawberries

1/2 cup coconut cream

1 cup oatmilk

2 Tablespoons honey (optional)

Instructions

  1. Slice  1 cup frozen peaches into small pieces (small enough not to be a choking hazard for your kiddo) and set aside.
  2. Place other cup of frozen peaches and the rest of ingredients into blender or small food processor. Blend until smooth.
  3. Spoon blended mixture into popsicle mold, adding diced peaches as you go so there are bits throughout.
  4. Freeze 4-8 hours, until frozen.
